John Elliott – Soaring

SoaringSoaring is my first album. Although I have created and recorded many songs during the last 35 years or so, I have never released an album. It was always one of those things that I meant to do, so finally it is here!

My musical style on this album has some influences from artists like Jean-Luc Ponty, Pat Metheny, and Lyle Mays. It is instrumental mostly jazz-fusion, yet some songs are just pleasant melodies. Usually the music has a steady prevailing rhythmical element with subtle, crafty chord changes and smooth solos.

Soaring offers smooth instrumental textured melodies with driving rhythms using traditional instruments and synthesizers sculpt a blend of jazz-fusion influenced by Jean-Luc Ponty, Pat Metheny, Lyle Mays, and others. Get it at CDBaby.
